In Memory Of Lonesome George


Blog Posted:10/25/2012 8:30:00 AM

*

Lonesome George is a Galápagos Pinta Island Tortoise.

He's not an endangered specie. His situation is much worse.
Lonesome George is the very last of his kind.
His ancestors were basically slaughtered by the likes of mankind.
Feral goats on his native island had devoured most of his vegetation.
Now he lives a life of comfort and safety at  the Charles Darwin Research Station,
but poor Lonesome George will never have any future generations.
There's aren't any females of his specie to pro create any more offspring.
Although Lonesome George is still with us presently
I was compelled to create this memorial in honor of he
with the hope that they who may give this a read
will take a more serious out look about preserving our endangered species.
It is a very grave sin in my opinion
when human kind plays a role in any specie's extinction.
The only up side from all of this that I can see
is that Lonesome George will most probably out live me,
but when Lonesome George does eventually pass on
his entire specie will then be forever all gone.
No more of his kind will anyone ever again see.
The Galápagos Pinta Island Tortoise will be history.

Lonesome George, the very last of his specie
died on June 24th, 2012 from causes naturally.
Lonesome George, RIP,
as well as to your entire once very great magnificent specie.

I will be posting further photos of Lonesome George here every now and then,
so feel free to revisit if you'd like to pay further homage to him.

    Locally, starving dogs, cats or horses get more attention than starving children.

    It's truly sad what we do to the animals in the world... and to people, too.

    SBTK....the farm bill this congress is about to pass....for the first time in generations, has not attached any conservation qualifiers for eligibility....what does this mean jimbo? one might ask...well, for starters, land not planted (tilled and natural diversity lost) provided for many species to have "pothole sanctuary" when migrating....GONE....(we have gained so much from this)..etc... in my State (Mn) since federal de-listing as endangered, Wolves are being hunted! my god man, I think as a civilization we are doomed, dudes & dudettes....jimbo

    I didn't know that George died. A little piece of me just now died along with him.

    Poor George. Too bad they can't do something with a related species, ala Jurassic Park.
